The Greenmarket multistorey car park is probably the nearest reliable parking place for the Bonar Hall, and is free after 8pm  – The other near council parking areas are the South Tay Street Car Park, Olympia Multi Storey Car Park,  and the Gellatly Street Multi Storey Car Park) . More details of Dundee City parking here.

Parking on the University Campus is available for the public but only at the weekends, but it is cheaper and more convenient than parking elsewhere. Payment is via the Ringo app. It is best to set this up before you come and it is easy to use. More about University parking here

For the Steps Theatre (for the Thursday evening show) it should be possible to park in one of the surrounding streets, such as the Hilltown or Bell Street.


Subject to appropriate availability of services, please consider travelling to the festival by train or bus.

A lot of people mentioned on the feedback forms that it would be great to have food available during the festival. With our limited resources, this is not possible unless we get approached by a food van or similar.
